Other Scriptures referred to: Exodus 20:8-11, Gen 1:24-2:4, Exodus 31:12-18, Psalm 95.

We look at the Sabbath as a Command, and the Sabbath as a Sign. We see that the Sabbath commandment calls us to orient our time around the worship of God, that God uses the Sabbath to bless and refresh us in Christ, and how the Sabbath commandment continues into the NT as part of the moral law.

The Third Commandment

Speaker: Patrick Severson
Series: 10 Commandments
Sermon Info:
Other Scriptures referred to: Psalm 111, Proverbs 30:1-9, Acts 19:13-17

As we study the third commandment we look at the significance of the Lord’s name and the proper use of the Lord’s name. We see that his name must be treated with the reverence and love, and that the way we think about and treat God’s name is an indication of our heart attitude towards him.

Speaker: Patrick Severson
Series: 10 Commandments
Sermon Info:
Other Scripture texts: 1 Kings 12:25-13:5, Mt 15:1-9, Rom 1:16-25

In sermon 2 on the 2nd commandment, we look at some NT applications: how God still calls us to worship, directs our worship, and liberates our worship. It still calls us to reject human innovation in worship and to pursue and enjoy what God alone commands in worshipping him.

The Second Commandment

Speaker: Patrick Severson
Series: 10 Commandments
Sermon Info:
Sermon 1 or 2 on the second commandment. We look at the parameters and purposes of the 2nd commandment. We see that the commandment not only addresses the problem of using physical images in worship. It also confronts the mentality of worshipping God according to our own preferences and feelings rather than obeying his written Word.

We look at the heart of idolatry both for believers and unbelievers by considering the nature of idolatry, how to identify idolatry, and the most dangerous idolatry. We will see that knowing and having God for himself is the only rest for our restless hearts.
